Positive Reviews

See Venice and Marvel

The location of the Carlton is superb for the visitor wishing to see Venice in all its glory, being near the railway and bus stations, also easily accessible by water taxi from Marco Polo airport. The nearby point of access to the vaporetto enables guests to set off by boat for the major locations of the city. The hotel and its rooftop bar and terrace are appreciated by guests.

Food for the Body as Well as the Soul

Guest enjoy the fact that breakfast is included in the hotel package, and elegant dining can be enjoyed in La Cupola Restaurant. The quality of all the food served in the hotel was well noted: the buffet breakfast was a highlight. The complimentary champagne and canapés provided for a guest's birthday were a charming touch.

Helpful Staff and a Cuddly Crocodile

The staff are polite, friendly and professional. Guests who arrived with a very elderly mother were swiftly helped, and given had a room suitable for somebody with reduced mobility even though they had not pre-ordered it. A visiting couple were charmed by the presence of a cuddly crocodile in their baby's cot!

Negative Reviews

Rooms on the Small Side

The rooms are a little small and appear slightly tired, with worn carpet, and lacked a tea or coffee maker. The bed was rather hard and uncomfortable.

Obligatory Ham

Bar and food prices were found to be high, and one waiter on the terrace did not endear himself by refusing to provide a cheese only toasted sandwich. Guests travelling with a small child found the staff unhelpful, this is supposed to be child-friendly Italy!

Disappointing Food Quality

The coffee was not as good as expected, and there was a lack of fresh salad, and fruit salad. However staff were prepared to make them if asked.
